COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. (AP) -- Zach Clark hit a run-scoring single in the seventh inning, leading the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers to a 6-5 win over the West Michigan Whitecaps on Friday.

Gabe Friese allowed a run, but got Brock Deatherage to ground out with runners on first and third to end the game for his sixth save of the season.

The single by Clark, part of a three-run inning, gave the Timber Rattlers a 4-3 lead before Trever Morrison hit a two-run single later in the inning.

West Michigan cut the deficit to one after Brady Policelli hit a solo home run in the seventh inning and Policelli hit an RBI single in the ninth.

Tristen Lutz homered and singled, also stealing a base for Wisconsin.

Wisconsin right-hander Christian Taugner (6-6) picked up a quality start and the win after allowing four runs on eight hits over seven innings. Opposing starter Brad Bass (5-6) took the loss in the Midwest League game after giving up five runs and seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Policelli homered and singled twice, driving home two runs for the Whitecaps. Deatherage singled three times, also stealing two bases.
